admin - February 16, 2011



cholesterol and other numbersFebruary is Heart Month, American Heart Month, according to the American Heart Association, and WBAL-TV in Baltimore recently did a report about their area hospital’s health screening day and the importance of heart screenings for women, particularly women “of a certain age.” 

 

 

The report highlights risk factors for heart disease, including high cholesterol, diabetes, high blood pressure and obesity. The report also points out the importance of carotid ultrasound screenings, emphasizing that “if you have plaque in your neck, you’re likely to have plaque in other places,” which was explained by Mercy Medical Center’s Dr. Monica Aggarwal.   

It’s great to see a news station talking about these important health tests. Read the article and watch the video here: http://www.wbaltv.com/womansdoctor/26861979/detail.html.
